Well, I like more the old style, you know with the DF logo... we whorshipers need icons... sure you understand... ahem...

Seriously, the systems that shows what threads have new messages doesn't seem to work well... even refreshing the page... mmmm... perhaps it's my browser...

I am like arsthein - I liked the old format - mostly.
The new format is visually disturbing after having had the other for so long for DF; the old was unique compared to the other forums I am on.

As far as the old forum:
I miss the PM function.
I miss the hidden function.
I miss the fact that threads/topics you read changed color as you read them; the new forums do not so I have to keep careful tabs now so I do not read the same thread twice+.
I miss that you were subscribed to a thread/topic as soon as you posted on it.
I miss the less compicated dating system; new date system is confusing compared to the old one.
I miss the section-specific "mark as read" function; now it only works on the whole forum which thereby provides nearly no utility.

I do like the new thumbnail pic function.

An additional after-thought that came to mind is that I miss the fact the old forum did not say you had editted your post if you corrected/editted it before someone else posted in the same thread.
Sometimes, spelling and syntax errors get through review and are not spotted until posting.
The old forum did not make a public spectacle of this, and I appreciated it.
